Sample Answer

Do you agree that it’s important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together?

Um … well … I think in some cases it could be important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together. For example, parents or even grandparents can enjoy doing fun things with their children or grandchildren, like, you know, things that don’t require a lot of physical ability such as playing games, reading or cooking. I guess that sometimes it is very important for older people to do things with younger ones, especially more difficult skills that need to be taught like … I don’t know … martial arts or playing a musical instrument.

I am really grateful for your amazing help, especially in the speaking test. My results were 7.5 in speaking and 6.5 in reading, writing and listening. Overall, band 7!!!

To me, it was great when I sent my first writing task to Jenny. I was very proud of it, but Jenny didn’t like it at all and she told me many points to be improved if I wanted to dream of a band 7 in IELTS. At last!! I had found someone who was able to assess my work in the same way as IELTS examiners do, keeping my writing band far away from that 7. Jenny’s feedbacks were really useful, so I learnt how to successfuly perform this task and I got my desired mark!
In terms of the Speaking, I realised about the difference between a simple conversation and an exam where you need to make sure that you show off all your communication, grammar and vocab skills.
